Electromagnetic radiation (EMR), such as measured from smart
meters, has been associated in many scientific studies with
negative health effects. Yet, BC Hydro (a Canada based
electrical utility), has decided to install a WIMAX
(Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) system and
smart meters on Salt Spring Island as a test project. This
plan will subject all citizens and animal species to
excessive levels of EMR and should be abandoned.
Salt Spring Islanders wisely rejected two attempts to
install cell phone transmitters in populated areas in 2000
and 2004, based on science showing this type of technology
to be dangerous to public health.
The WIMAX and smart meter system is far worse than the
jacked-up high voltage power line they recently forced onto
this community, upping transmission voltages (multiple
overhead lines from 138kV to 230kV). This is not a green
initiative, nor does it save energy. It is purely for
corporate efficiency and fails to take negative effects into
This WIMAX and smart meter experiment represents an
unacceptable threat to the sustainability and health of this
community. I urge people to take a hard look at this
proposal and come together in preventing this plan, or we
will soon see our precious island become a much less healthy
place for people, plants, and animals.
There is huge public outcry and scientific opposition to
this toxic technology in other areas such as California,
where they are further along in the deployment of wireless
gas and electric meters. The province of Quebec and many
countries are rejecting the installation of these very
hackable wireless systems. In some instances, power bills
have soared mysteriously after radiation meters are
installed. They compromise privacy and information security.
Health complaints from the new meters are in the tens of
